This week’s question from Booking Through Thursday is:
Which do you prefer? Biographies written about someone? Or Autobiographies written by the actual person (and/or ghost-writer)?
This is quite a difficult question to answer. I usually only read fiction and don’t read either biographies or autobiographies very often (although as it happens I’m reading one at the moment!) but I don’t really have any preference for one or the other. The most important thing to me would be to get an honest and unbiased account of the person’s life – and of course, for the book to be well written and interesting.
